We are pleased to be able to announce the trust has received a grant for three projects to be completed over the next three years. Conservation Minister Kiri Allan announced Te Ara Kākāriki will receive $953,000 over three years so we can restore indigenous biodiversity through the planting of two Legacy Sites and targeted restoration assistance in the Otahuna / Tai Tapu area linking with Te Kakahu Kahukura.
Four Kaimahi have been employed to plant and maintain 50,000 seedlings, carry out predator control, build tracks and maintain and install fencing for these projects.
We’re excited to be part of this amazing mahi for conservation happening across Canterbury. For more details Read here: Stuff article: Planting Seeds and Restoring Rivers with Jobs for Nature
